Mark Jarvis to open new restaurant, 1771 on October 14th

On 14th October Mark Jarvis, the chef behind popular Farringdon restaurant Anglo, will launch 1771, a new contemporary British restaurant on Holbein Place, Chelsea. 

Inspired by the restaurant’s locale, 1771 takes its name from the year the area was first established, highlighting their commitment to both serving its residents and using local independent suppliers throughout the restaurant. 

Situated just off Sloane Square, 1771 will offer the perfect escape from hectic city life. 

Diners will be transported to a modern, residential space where they can admire artwork from renowned twentieth century artists, such as Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol. 

Available from lunch through to late evening, Mark’s menus will focus on refined, creative cooking using carefully grown locally sourced produce. 

Mark has curated a tasting menu, which begins with plates such as cured trout and potato soufflé in a parsley emulsion and oak grilled langoustine in a shell emulsion served with white soy. 

To follow will be dishes including poached halibut with mustard greens and charcoal and Mark’s signature cheese and onion malt loaf. 

For a sweet end to the tasting menu there will be a caramelised sourdough parfait on offer as well as apple cake served alongside parsley root ice cream. 

For those who prefer to order plates for the table Mark has also designed a sharing menu with additional dishes including scallops barbecued in their shell served with seaweed butter; whole truffle-roasted chicken and wood fired jacket potato with cultured cream and caviar. 

An enviable yet accessible wine list will be hand-selected to perfectly accompany Mark’s dishes with an impressive selection of white and red wines from Burgundy.

1771’s contemporary and polished cuisine will be reflected in the restaurant’s aesthetic. A deep Sacramento green façade embellished with hand-cut fresh flowers will welcome guests to the space. 

Once inside, shades of warm tan and green will flow throughout the restaurant; using fabrics from acclaimed Chelsea-based luxury interior designer Rose Uniacke, praised for her serene modernity.

Banquette seating will be upholstered in her distinguished linen, alongside plush cushions covered in a selection of green and tan hues. 

The 50-seater dining room, spread across two spaces, will be laid with a natural seagrass flooring to give the space a warm yet casual feel; marble topped tables will be adorned with crisp white linen to provide a stark, clean contrast to the natural tones throughout the rooms.

The restaurant is flooded with light from a series of windows looking out onto the street, making it the perfect place to while away an afternoon. 

Following their meal, guests can descend to the vibrant bar, designed as a homage to the Pop Art movement, where an original print of Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans can be admired. 

Mark said: "It has been a really tough year for our industry so we are thrilled to be opening this restaurant, especially in West London which is an area I’ve always loved. We can’t wait for everyone to see what we’ve been working on and to try out these fantastic new flavours."
